    Default Jackson family buys retreat in Devon, England



    Michael Jackson is to stay with his brother in Devon in a bid to escape the media glare.

    The singer and other members of the family will use Tito's new home in Barnstaple as a bolthole to avoid press intrusion in the US, reports The Sun.

    Tito, a judge on BBC1 show Just The Two Of Us, is understood to have made offers on two properties in the town after deciding to focus on his career in the UK.

    He said: "We hope it will be a family hideaway where my brothers and sisters can escape media attention when we need to. I can confirm that he [Michael] has been to Barnstaple on private visits in recent years along with my brother Jermaine and a few other Jackson siblings."

    He added: "My family love North Devon and the wonderful countryside and friendly people. I am looking forward to living in Barnstaple and I hope the Barnstaple public will respect our family's privacy."

    He revealed that Michael and Janet were keen for him to make the move so they can escape the spotlight, saying: "Michael likes North Devon too as no one bothers him."

    Two British Michael Jackson fans are reportedly hoping to buy Neverland Ranch to save it from being repossessed

    What's Devon done to deserve that? Everyone there needs to lock up their kids ASAP.

    Why the hell did Michael keep Neverland? So he can continue to NOT pay the damn bills? So the place can sit empty and continue to deteriorate? Clearly the guy is still mooching off anyone who will still talk to him.

    Well considering the post states that its just "a retreat" lets hope that means la famille Jackson will be spending a lot of the 365 days of the year in the US ....

    And the lovely British weather will soon dampen their spirits and they'll take a hike back to US

    Ah-ha, well apparently, I heard that they've managed to put the sale off til May but not the "repossession" bit of it - if I read it right (I was just skimming it) i.e. that instead of going to auction he can try to sell it to raise the cash to repay the mortage & loans secured on it???...

    To be fair, the UK did *bless* the US with the Beckhams... and the freakish collaboration that was Eddie & Scary Spice, ultimately resulting in a child with a name that sounded like it was rejected from Sea World. Only later to be renamed to something slightly less crap*tastic.
